    July 11, 2018 in Spain ⋅ 🌧 21 °C

    Heute ist der 11.07 der Geburtstag meines Sohnes Johann und ich bin hier. Schon etwas emotional.
    Doch im Herzen vereint.
    Der Tag startet mit gutem Pilgerfrühstück nach wirklich guten Schlaf. Die Etappe heute war wieder sehr schön. Viele Strände, verlassene Buchten und unberührte Natur wofür der Camino Northe bekannt ist und er zeigt sich hier von der schönsten Seite. Ich mache ein zweites Frühstück direkt an der Klippe schöner gehts nicht. Weiter gehts über Wiesen und Schotter du kleine süße Städte verträumt und es scheint die Uhr stehen geblieben zu sein. Da können wir Deutschen uns ne Riesen Scheibe von abschneiden von dieser Gelassenheit. Da die Energie auch bei mir heute sehr gut ist laufe ich weiter...bis Pińeres dort komme ich an einer wunderschönen kleinen Alberge an die gerade 10 Betten hat in einem schnuckeligen kleinen Haus❤️Etappe beendet nach 36km🙈Read more

    One of the hardest things about the Camino is staying on it. Th route is marked with yellow arrows, supplemented by signs, shells, and other markers. When you consider that there are more than a thousand miles of routes to mark, it's not surprising that there are a few spots that are less-than-clearly marked. Also, when the path takes to the scrub brush, or the beach, there's really no place to put a mark. (It's amazing how much yellow moss can look like an arrow!). I think I've only been totally off the trail once, but there have been many times that I thought I was lost, and it made me so happy to see a friendly little yellow arrow. In Asturia, you go in the direction AWAY from where the shell points, but in Galicia it's the other way around. Shells are pretty but arrows are clear.

    I'm happy to report that we've had 2 beautiful rain free days! Usually I'm walking with the Picos (like the Alps) on one side and the ocean on the other - stunning scenery all around me!

    Heaven or .......

    September 15, 2017 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 13 °C

    Omg, what a dat yesterday. The most km I have walked up to now in a day was yesterday, and believe me, I feel it in my legs! But it was also the day on the camino up to now, filled with the most laughter 😁😁😁.

    I had left the peaceful town of Poo in the morning, after a good night sleep. It was raining a little and I left together with a german girl named Lina. Lina also speaks Dutch, because she studied in the Netherlands.
    We took the coastal route, with beautiful views on beaches, rock formations, amazing. While walking, we came across people standing by a tent in a field. Turns out it was three pilgrims I had met in the albergue in Comillas.
    One girl from Belgium, and two guys from France. They had spent the night in the tent in the field. 😳😳😳😳
    Mind you, it had rained and was very windy, so the girl's tent almost blew away and she had to crawl in the boys' tent.

    Soo, I went to say hi to them and the girl, Kristien, said she wanted to continue walking with me, because tonight she wanted to sleep in an albergue. We ended up walking together, talking, laughing, going the wrong way, having to go back, having to stop because her camel bag broke so everything in her bag was wet......
    A very eventful day filled with ups and downs but always met with laughter.

    When we were close to the albergue, we were both so tired that we got the slappe lach.

    Finally at the albergue, I was soooo happy that I had the sense to have made a reservation the night before and in the morning I had also made a reservation for Kristien.

    When we arrived it turned out there was an overbooking......... There where too many people who's names started with krist.....
    There was Christy, Christina and Kristien and the hospitalera thought Christina and Kristien were the same....... And Christina was already at the albergue........ Owh shit.......

    In the end........ We got a room just for the two of us (the hospitalera vacated her room for us 😂). It was great! I had a shower, a delicious vegetarian dinner and also the option of having a massage, but just too tired, so I went to bed.

    Now, a lot had happened since then, the short version...... Kristien did get a massage after dinner, during which the masseuse discovered all these red spots on her and told her she has bed bug bites, so all in rep and roer, everything has to be cleaned, the hospitalera not so happy, because she might have brought bed bugs in her albergue, haaaai diosssss, anyway, I am still at the albergue now, waiting for her clothes to dry.........
